. >> you know, jim la camp. i'm wondering, hollande is coming here to the united states to meet with president obama, who is not a big fan of u.s. companies setting up shop abroad anyway. or hiring overseas anyway. so, he might actually find a sympathetic ear in the president? >> i think he might because he -- i think the president probably idolizes this guy. if you look at what the other president operates and the european socialist style system. look, if you can't fire anybody, then you aren't going to hire anybody. it doesn't make any sense, and what does the message send to the workers over there. they can show up late. they can do whatever they want to, not be productive and they're not going to get fired. i think that gm ought to say, au revoir, we're out of here. france isn't the only place they can build cars in europe anyway. this is a disasterous policy and european style socialism on steroids and trouble in the first place. >> and just like to raise a couple of things quickly, neil. hold on. gary, if i could. you said something you called hollande a dictator and that'

here i bit heree united states. commodities weakening. despite massive fiscal and monetary stimulus. i'm worried. >> here is the thing, almost every company that reports these days says but europe is more than just a red flag. it is an anchor and hurting the stock market and hurting america. >> not just tiffany, bridgestone and staples and best buy and even cisco. it is just like the retailers and weather that. so companies are going to be blaming europe and "worries about europe" for a sales pullback when it iser that own execution problems. i'm worried but as ben pointed out you got to throw in other regions of the world. particularly trouble in china if you want to start talking about recession there or here. >> if it you told me 7 or 8 months ago that america would be in the best shape of everyone out there i would be surprised. not necessarily with europe falling apart. >> we are the tallest midget in the room right now. that is how they describe nike on wall street. i went to a major head fund conference the ore day. major investors said this. every one predicted a moderate to se

and obama. >> we are talking about the president of the united states. i critize him i call him the president. it seems like everyone is bitchin about something. they are mad about something. i can understand displaced anger but i don't think they know what is going o. i just don't. it is understandable. and thep to say you expect everything else to be free or coming to you as if there is no cost that young man was not an to the crowd. a nation that once conquered the world that is it what a famous comment orsaid and that is america now. we have a block of the electorate who expect everything to be given to them. it is college stunes and it is begin to them for free boy people who drive attackss and work on factory lines. i hope they are not listening to them. >> i hold your intellect in high, high reregard you are a dishonest argument. >> to equate the occupy movement? >> and he came out. and he endorsed them. he is not. that is the folks that are demanding a free lunch . ther violent. >> ther notine the american demcraft. and ther people protesting. i want to and you i didn't

of all, it's not a big problem with wealthy people leaving the united states. it was fewer than 2000 last year. >> i think we're all, i think-- i think we're all agreed that saverin is, this is sort of disgusting behavior that america gave him in this opportunity and now he goes. i don't think that disgusting is the right word. to are people to earn their livelihood, and you know what, i don't want to contribute-- >> you're missing the bigger point. saverin can leave the u.s. because he's rich, other people can't. and vote with their feet and move out of the state because mario cuomo is taking down the license number and moving out of california and jerry brown is raising taxes and-- moving to texas. >> and those are real-- >> i want to add, it's not just the people who are leaving this country, it's the attitude and action of those who are here that will keep people out of the u.s. people have choices where other places start businesses. >> neil: something you said, you equate it, it seems to he moo, patriotism with paying a lot to the government. that's twisted. that's twisted. >> no, i
